Casey Abrams burst into the public eye in 2011, at the age of19, when he finished in 6th place on American Idol, as the first contestant to regularly perform with his upright bass, pushing the mainstream show’s musical boundaries firmly into the jazz world for the first time.

Highlights from the show include an audition performance of Georgia on My Mind that still goes viral to this day (racking up 850k views as recently as last month when reshared by Casey on his personal Instagram, see here), a final performance duetting with Jack Black, and judge Randy Jackson calling him “the best musician we’ve ever had on Idol”.

Following the Season 10 American Idol Tour, Casey was signed to Concord Records, where Randy Jackson produced his first album, “Casey Abrams,” recorded in London at the Kensaltown Studios, and was voted the #1 Billboard Heat Seekers Album.

Alongside four further albums of his own, Casey also spent five years with the international sensation Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox as one of its leading performers and emcees as well the online star of many of PMJ’s most popular viral videos.  To date, Casey has tallied over 150 million views for his video performances with PMJ (examples: Umbrella (22M views), What is Love  (5.4M views)). He has completed dozens of national and International PMJ tours across five continents, playing to packed audiences at the Sydney Opera House, Denver’s Red Rock Amphitheater, Paris’ L’Olympia, London’s O2 Arena, Radio City Music Hall and heading up a residency at The Mirage, Las Vegas.

Having recently returned to the stage after 18 months’ recuperating from a serious of major operations as part of a years-long battle with Ulcerative Colitis that resulted in him having his entire colon removed in emergency surgery in 2022, Casey has burst back on the scene in Los Angeles with a vengeance. His social media presence has exploded, with one recent Instagram Reel of a performance of L-O-V-E racking up 23.5M views and fuelling a renewed buzz in the multi-instrumentalist widely considered to be the nicest man in music.
